Travel Tips for visiting Cabo da Roca

Cabo da Roca, Facing the Atlantic ocean 



Cabo da Roca has located about 40 km from Lisbon, and if it is so well known, it is due to its position: it is indeed the most western point of Europe!

You can take advantage of a trip to Sintra or your visit to Cascais to discover this natural site where the wind blows strongly. 

It is normal because you will be on the edge of a 150 meters high cliff that overhangs the ocean.
The landscape that offers itself to you here will delight any nature lover, with on one side the stretch of water that seems infinite, and on the other the mountains of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.

It is worth noting that in the 17th century, a fort stood here and served as an observation and surveillance point to control ships.

Given the visibility that this point of view offers, it is easy to understand why!

What to do in Cabo da Roca



The area of Cabo da Roca lends itself perfectly to a walk, which will allow you to breathe fresh air and take some great shots of Portuguese nature. 

But be careful not to get too close to the shore or take selfies... there have been several deaths of unwary tourists in recent years.

On the spot, you will find the Farol do Cabo da Roca, the lighthouse built in 1772 which is the third oldest building of its kind in Portugal.
You can visit it if you pass by on a Wednesday afternoon. Its powerful light makes it visible from a distance of 46 km!

The landscape that is offered to you here will delight any nature lover, with on one side the stretch of water that seems infinite, and on the other the mountains of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.
